Editorial Reviews

"Greenham's account will be of great help to general readers and of provocative stimulation to scholars of nineteenth-century readers. For general readers, he offers a splendid overview of Emerson scholarship of the past fifty years, for scholars, he offers a skilful use of Emerson's letters and journals to present new proof for earlier, forgotten positions. It is an exciting and useful text." - Professor of English, University of California Davis
